Paper-pieced Easter Egg

With the Spring season approaching I decided I would share this sweet little egg that I made last year to use up some pretty scraps I had laying around... I crocheted the flower using embroidery floss because I had it in the peach color that matched so well.  You can make one too by using the simple paper-pieced pattern below. Simply print it off on 8 1/2" X 11" paper (the egg should be 8" tall). Start at the bottom, and work your way to the top.  Layer with batting and backing and sew around the outer edge to keep the layers together, do this slowly to prevent the fabrics from stretching. You may also wish you quilt it in the seams. Cut the binding on the bias (at an angle) and carefully sew it on the outer edge without letting it stretch as you sew. Add crochet flower and button or other embellishments. Click the link to download the egg pattern, or drag the image to your desktop and print :)
